Rainbow Cardigan

This rainbow cardigan has been finished for about 2 weeks ago and worn it, but no time to model and take photos. Why, many reasons, such as : lazy to go out, the weather is not up to my mood, no one take the photos for me, ..... So, just take some at home, hope you will enjoy them.





Detail :
Pattern : my own (just sit down and crochet and do not have any pattern in my mind along the crocheting)
yarn : all my stash
Usage : I don't know and haven't weight the cardigan

I love this cardigan because it is so colourful that I seldom wear the one with many bright colours. It make me feel happier and younger.

I love the buttons very much also. At one day when I am wandering around the street (without any purpose for buying) with many stalls, there is one stall come across my eye. That stall is selling some ribbons, lace edgings, other handicraft materials and buttons, buttons, buttons.... That is what I want for my rainbow. The buttons are packed having 5 or 6 buttons of each pack. I have to search,search, search.... among those buttons mountain. Suddenly, I find one pack with 6 different colours' flower shape button. Of course, I buy it immediately. Is it totally match with theme of my rainbow cardigan ??

Up to this moment, I can't think of anything to knit and I don't want to pick up my only one WIP - cable and twisted tree vest. Don't know why, just don't want to or may be don't want to knit in summer. May be I can buy some fabrics and sew some shirt for myself during this summer time.

The red does look very nice for a border trim. Very cute buttons too, they work well with the color theme of the cardigan.

Wow...it turned out great. Using different colored buttons was a great idea. I will have to keep that one in mind.

So, can you say you "no longer have a yarn stash"? Excellent useage of leftover yarns.

Beautiful! The red border really brings out the other colors. What a great idea to use your extra stash.

Wow, this turned out very beautiful, and you are right, the colors are happy. The red border was a good choice. Great job on the sewn blouse! (I wish I could sew.)
